4.99

The Portico Library’s exhibition ‘Making the News: Reading between the lines, from Peterloo to Meskel Square’ runs from July 5th-September 23rd 2019.

Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilisation, and helped make us who we are.
